Quiet, fashionable, and incredibly beautiful, Belgravia is an expensive neighborhood with classic looks and tons of old money. In the past, Belgravia was a bustling city center where some of the greatest movers and shakers lived. Today, you can still see that history in the grand terraces, some of which are owned by English royalty.
Many of these beautiful buildings actually belong to organizations, embassies, or companies. Those that do belong to individuals tend to have been handed down among families. This makes getting a home here incredibly difficult, so you will have to jump on open properties as soon as you can.
Belgravia has a great selection of dining options, ranging from casual delis and cafes to upscale restaurants. When it comes to nightlife, there are plenty of pubs and cocktail bars. As you'd expect of an affluent area, high end shopping is in high supply. A number of designer boutiques can be found on Sloane Street, the main shopping thoroughfare. The area around Elizabeth Street (which is a point of contenton since both Belgravia and Pimlico claim it as their own) has unique stores that specialize in wines, food, stationery, and accessories.
